My tbi occurred during a rear end collision 10 years ago. The back of my brain and right side were injured. I am legally blind because of it. I have excessive sleepiness all the time-diagnosed as Hypersomnia a year ago. I also found out I was misdiagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder at the time of the accident until anout a year ago. The correct primary diagnosis is Psuedobulbar affect with a comorbity of depression. I have been taking cymbalta, abilify, trintellix for those 10 years. Nothing helps. I take modafinil for the Hypersomnia. It barely helps. I take Neudexta for PBA. It helps. I would like to hold down a job again someday. And build a life again but cannot stay awake physically or mentally very long. I shut down completely or I cry profusely if I'm not taking meds As drs have attempted to wean me off throughout the years. Any advice for leveraging neuroplasticity again? Keeping awake, how to keep awake and what's causing the sleep to be in overdrive? What recommendations for "wake up" therapies, physicians that specialize and cognitive therapies to get my brain back. Have an MBA from pre-accident that I cannot use bc of my recall and shut down. please help.

Doctor said it would be in a simulator and be 1-2 hours. The doctors haven’t released me to drive yet and I’m fine with that. Haven’t drive since Dec 17, 2020. However I’m wondering if they have the power to take your drivers license?? Also wondering if you can wreck in the simulator so I can prepare and also warn them of it being a major trigger.

We could travel to Daytona, we prefer not to travel all the way to Orlando but we would if that's the only option.
His balance gives us the most concern. If there is a neuro physical therapist or vestibular therapist close by that can help him with his balance that would be awesome.
